Snow tires

 When replacing original tires with winter (snow) tires, make sure you use only the same size, construction and load range as the original tires listed on the tire placard. Using other sizes and construction may affect speedometer/ odometer calibration and clearance between the body and tires. It also may be dangerous and lead to loss of vehicle control.

You must install four winter tires that are of the same size, construction, brand, and load range.

Mixing other sizes or constructions may result in severe mechanical damage to the drive train of your vehicle and may affect ride, handling, braking and speedometer/odometer calibration.

It also may be dangerous and lead to loss of vehicle control.

Do not use a combination of radial, belted bias or bias tires since it may cause dangerous handling characteristics and lead to an accident.
